After scouring the entire Amalfi Coast for our dream wedding location (and initially not wishing to even look at Marmorata as it was a Best Western) my now-husband and I walked into Marmorata expecting another venue that for some reason wasn't 'quite right'. How wrong we could be?! The sensational views were simply breathtaking and the perfect setting for a romantic wedding. The hotel itself is beautifully and uniquely furnished and still had the air of an independent and family run luxury hotel. The service we received was 2nd to none. Not really speaking Italian, and not having the budget for a wedding planner, we relied fully on the hotel to help to organise our wedding and were very impressed with every aspect they supported with. Manuela and her team catered for our every need, arranging every detail of our wedding from the boat to collect us from the church to bring us back to the hotel, to arranging the florist, cake, cars and sound system.
Marmorata was one of the only establishments we felt were not trying to capitalise on the fact we were having a wedding, and rather than adding extra expenses to an already expensive event they made the pricing easy and transparent. They also threw in so many extras like free honeymoon suite, free food tasting for us and our 4 parents (despite initially saying we'd get free dinner for 2, we had dinner for 6 with wine and prosecco), and printing beautiful menu's and a table planner which most wedding planners would charge for.
The food was exceptional. I will never know how a chef can cook 50 perfectly cooked steaks (especially in 30 degree heat!) but he did. The shellfish pasta was beautiful and every other meal we had there was delicious. My only critique is probably the breakfast, which is continental style and not really to my taste, but for what it was it was very good, and a typical Italian style breakfast.
We had 50 guests from the UK and Italy and everyone agreed that they had never known a wedding like it. Every detail was superb and we will be eternally grateful to Manuela and her team for giving us the fairytale wedding that we dreamed of. We were hoping to go back to Marmorata this June to celebrate our anniversary but as I am now 6 months pregnant we will have to wait until next year. All I can say is if you have the chance to go, you must! We have seen about 90% of the hotels along that coastline and can confirm that Marmorata is certainly one of the best and most reasonable of all. Book now, and enjoy your stay! x
